7 KEY TEXT 1 Corinthians 10:31 NIV S O WHETHER YOU eat or drink or whatever you do, do all for the glory of God.

8 Nutrition in the Bible I NITIAL W ORDS {326} W HAT WE EAT helps make us what we are. Our blood, bones, fat, and tissues all are fed by the food we put in our bodies. We know how much food impacts us physicallyand mentally, as well. Indeed, diet can impact our thoughts, which should not be surprising, because our brain is central to thought, and our brain is affected by the foods that feed it.

9 Nutrition in the Bible Q UICK L OOK 1. Food in the Old Testament (Genesis 1:27, 29) 2. Food in the New Testament (1 Timothy 4:1-4) 3. Food Today (Romans 14:17)

10 Nutrition in the Bible 1. F OOD IN THE O LD T ESTAMENT Genesis 1:27, 29 NKJV S O G OD CREATED man in His own image…. And God said, See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food.

11 1.Food in the Old Testament THE ORIGINAL DIET {327} S CIENTIFIC RESEARCH HAS confirmed that a vegetarian diet is healthier than a diet high in meat full of saturated fat. The Adventist Health Study, conducted by Loma Linda University, compared Seventh-day Adventist church members in the United States who share similar demographics and lifestyles except for two different categories of diet.

12 1.Food in the Old Testament THE ORIGINAL DIET {327} Other studies conducted in Europe, Australia, and South America confirm these findings, and more than four hundred reports on the health of Seventh-day Adventists have now been published in scientific journals.

13 1.Food in the Old Testament THE ORIGINAL DIET {327} When those who eat a lacto-ovo-vegetarian diet (plant food plus eggs and milk) were compared to omnivores who included red and white meats in their diet, the vegetarians had less heart disease, less types of cancers, less hypertension, less diabetes, less dementia, and less osteoporosisleading to an increased life expectancy.

14 1.Food in the Old Testament THE ORIGINAL DIET {327} The Adventist vegetarians enjoyed eight to ten additional healthy years of life by eating more whole grains, fruits, vegetables, legumes, and nuts. They also ate less refined grain products, sugar, and prepared foods.

15 Only after the Flood, with so much vegetation destroyed, did God give humans permission to eat animals. Genesis 7:1, 2; 8:20 prove that the difference between clean and unclean meats did not originate with the Jewish economy. How could it have, when there were no Jews or Jewish nation at this time? 1.Food in the Old Testament THE POST-FLOOD DIET {329}

16 Nutrition in the Bible 2. F OOD IN THE N EW T ESTAMENT 1 Timothy 4:1-4 NKJV N OW THE S PIRIT expressly says that in latter times some will depart from faith … forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from food which God created to be received with thanksgiving…. For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused it it is received with thanksgiving.

17 2. Food in the New Testament N O M ORE U NCLEAN M EAT ? {331} P AUL WAS DEALING with future heresies that would forbid believers to partake of two things that God gave humanity at Creation, food and marriage. The foods involved are all foods that God had created for human consumption. Pauls words here should not be taken to mean that unclean foods were created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth.

18 In Romans 14, 1 Cor. 8:4–13, 10:25–28 Paul addressed the widespread practice in the Gentile world of offering flesh food to idols. Early Christians struggled with the question of whether the eating of such food was an act of pagan worship. Those strong in their faith did not believe it was, and thus they could eat all edible things offered to idols. 2. Food in the New Testament N O M ORE U NCLEAN M EAT ? {331}

19 Those who did not have such a strong faith used only vegetables. Paul urged that no one should despise those who eat only vegetables or judge those who eat all things suitable for food. Whats wrong with using Acts 10 as proof that the New Testament has done away with the clean/unclean distinction in regard to diet? 2. Food in the New Testament N O M ORE U NCLEAN M EAT ? {331}

20 Romans 14:17 NKJV F OR THE KINGDOM of God is not food and drink, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Nutrition in the Bible 3. F OOD T ODAY

21 3. Food Today B ALANCED D IET {335} T HE BEST MEDICAL science affirms the basic principles of the kind of diet we advocate. In Ellen G Whites last address to the General Conference in 1909, she counseled, We do not mark out any precise line to be followed in diet; but we do say that in countries where there are fruits, grains, and nuts in abundance, flesh food is not the right food for Gods people.Testimonies 9:159

22 In other words, if we are in a position to eat this way, we should seek to do it. It does not make us righteous, it does not make us holy, and it certainly does not put us in a position to judge those who do not eat the way we think is best. It can, though, make us healthier, and who does not want good health? 3. Food Today B ALANCED D IET {335}

23 A vegetarian does not automatically mean eating a healthy diet; at the same time, eating some meat does not automatically defiling their body temple. Other factors for a good diet are important, as well. You could be a vegetarian and yet at the same time be consuming too much fat, too much salt, or too much sugar. Or consuming too much food in general. 3. Food Today B ALANCED D IET {333}

24 Nutrition in the Bible F INAL W ORDS {335} D IET PLAYS AN role in health. How wise, then, for us to seek to do the best we can in what we eat. How important for us to exercise self-discipline and self-control when tempted to eat what we know is not good for us. God gave these truths to us for our benefit. When we ignore them, we hurt ourselves and others are made to suffer, as well.
